    Hi, yes ive already posted in the eqipment section so already started to pick your brains. Im looking at eirther the nexstar 5se or 6se. not sure wich one to go for:icon_eek:
  7. Hi all, I need to pick your brains ive always been interested in astronomy and when i lived at home many years ago i had an 8 inch dob (to be honest not the best optics so slightly put me off as got annoyed with it) Anyway looking to get a scope that is portable easy to use good optics and upgradable. I live in an apartment so cant use it from home so with be taking it in car to use. I like the look at the nexstar 5 and 6 but not sure which one to go for, i know the bigger the better but my main priority is portability. Long term i would also like to do astrophotography (way down line). Ive read the nexstar 5 has a camera input but the nexstar 6 does'nt. So my questio is! whats the better scope for my requirements?
